Biography


Born as Jazmine Marie Sullivan in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on April 9, 1987, Jazmine Sullivan began singing in the children's choir and then a few years later performing with the adults, alongside her mother. Refusing to sign a deal with a gospel label when she was eleven, she jumped into a singing contest McDonald's hosted instead. She delivered gospel single "Accept What God Allows" at the competition and though not winning the contest, she indeed received a positive response from the audience.

Wanting more than singing at the local choir and contests, Jazmine decided to ink a deal with Jive Records at age of fifteen. Struggling to find out who she was like many young singers at her age, she didn't know how to tell the label's executives what she really wanted to do for a record. As a result, she never released an album under Jive Records. Instead, she was dropped from the recording company. Having no way around to outburst her disappointment, Jazmine turned to the songwriting desk and began to narrate what she felt on songs, which later appeared on her debut album. Once sticking with a pen to craft new songs, she felt the need to bring what she had to the next level.
